 Spot Color Printing

 

 

Simulated Process Printing – this form of screen printing is used for creating very complicated and complex designs on darker colored shirts.  We use Pantone inks in different halftone drops to create the final image

 

Halftone – Halftone printing uses shading, gradients and small, barely visible dots to create the desired design. It can help deliver a very realistic-looking print – especially on photos and other images.

Plastisol Screen Transfers – We screen print your design onto transfer paper using plastisol inks for you to heat press onto your garments at a later date. We offer this for  spot color jobs only.

 We offer a wide range of inks. The ink used in your design depends greatly on the fabric content and shirt color we are printing on.

Here are a few ink choices that we offer:

 Plastisol inks This is our most popular ink beacause it can be printed on mainly any type of material. Plastosol ink can be printed on ligt and dark color fabrics. On lighter color sirts we use a ultrasoft ink and darker color shirts will be printed with a thicker opaque ink to retain brightness. Plastisol inks are printed wet and must be cured with heat to but once dried it froms a permanent bond with the fibers of the fabric it’s printed on and can out last your shirt. We can add soft hand reducers to create a soft feel on products.

 

 High-opacity inks  – this ink is used for  medium for dark-colored fabrics ink. A high opacity ink is a thicker ink that will cover the fabric so it can’t been seen through most fabrics. We use high opacity white inks for base colors on darker shirts. The only downfall with high opacity inks is when you layer alot of coors you will get a thick print with a hard hand.

 Low-bleed inks – Dye migration – which is when nearby dyes begin to run into one another and sometimes even change color – is a common problem on polyester materials, as well as highly intricate designs where colors are extremely close. Low-bleed inks prevent this migration from happening and ensure the integrity of the design.

 Soft-hand inks – Soft-hand inks give you a barely-there print. Perfect for jersey knit T-shirts, you can barely feel the ink once it’s applied. This is great for athletic and sleep wear, too.

 Process inks – These inks are used exclusively in process-color printing, and they ensure each individual dot of ink is as sharp and detailed as possible. They’re ideal if you have a highly detailed design.

 

 Special effect inks – we offer shimmer inks, glitter inks, puffs, neons and even glow in the dark inks. Speicalty inks cost a little more but are well worth the investment. these inks need to be printed with the proper mesh counts. Ask us if our specialty inks are right for you.Our Screen
